Off-trail route to be attempted only with suffficient snow cover to go on snowshoes or skis most of the way - (This is _not_ the remarkably-designed well-maintained summer hiking trail). From Whitney Portal parking to Trail Crest, which is near the south end of this climbing route: "Happy Cowboy edge traverse" (http://mountainproject.com/route/112047330).
